Sunset of Our Being! By L. Don Oliver
The Sunset of Our Being, It is nearly at it's _; The memories from yesterday, Is tomorrow's sad __;
Dreams that dared to be dreamed, Alas, they will never come _; Those dreams have been destroyed, By the political cunning ;
When twilight meets the night The dreams we use to __; They will all become passe, For those who chose not to _;
The graves of the patriotic ones, Today, they are all in _; They're gazing down from heaven above, As their Nation is being given ___;
That day will eventually dawn, The Sunset of Our Being is __; When it will be too late to say, Where, oh! Where, was _;
Has Memorial day become meaningless for those who have never served their Country?
Ship of Memories! By L. Don Oliver
I see the ships, upon the far; As they race, to cross the bar; Full sails, billowing briskly there; No sailors regret, for those who dare; Phosphorus waves, gently being splashed; Flowering Main, pleading to be lashed; Disciplined crew, upon the deck; The valorous ones, that I respect; Never an all night in, they are alone; With their thoughts, ever drifting home; Eight peals sound, from the ships bell; signalling that, all is well; Lightening flashing, in the night; Scaring the darkness, into light; Flickering lanterns, upon their posts; Dancing shadows, of wandering ghosts; White horses building, a storm ahead; Ship ahull, awaiting the dread; Howling winds, prayers of return; Homeward bound, every sailor's yearn; The tempest line, they have crossed; There upon the bow, an albatross; In the ocean, a dolphin plays; Out where, King Neptune stays; Brave souls, venture out to sea; That is where, I long to be;
